I work out of New Milford, CT but recently moved from Brewster, NY. I serve Litchfield County, Fairfield County, Westchester County, and Putnam County. 


Growing up, rainy days were spent looking through the countless photo albums that held the memories of our childhood with my eight brothers and sisters. My favorites were the un-posed and natural ones. This is where I attribute my passion for lifestyle photography.


As a mom of three, I understand the importance of having pictures to help keep special moments in time. As the saying goes, “The days are long, but the years are short.” My skills of child wrangling, baby whispering and multitasking can be attributed to my own kids and our everyday activities.


My goal of every session is to capture real emotions and to capture the essence of what makes up your family. I would love to work with you and share your special moments!

 

When I am not behind the camera; I love spending time with my family, getting outside as much as possible and exploring new places.

 

Feel free to reach out with any questions and for information on pricing.

Jessica & Vincent // Mahopac, NY

"Theresa was fantastic especially with my little ones! She was very flexible and able to get in the moment shots along with posed pictures. She took into account the needs of being a mom and what was best for my newborn as well as my family ! I would totally use her again for holiday photos or first bday pictures! We are so happy with our photos."


Jenna & Matt // New Milford, CT

"Theresa’s patience and creativity is exactly what our family needed for a photo shoot! Having a 3 month old at the time and a stubborn toddler who marches to her own beat participating in a photo shoot isn’t exactly ideal, however Theresa made it so fun and possible! Theresa was super creative, and worked with our kiddos needs so well! She didn’t mind taking 5 either so I could nurse my little guy and give my toddler a movement break! Theresa was fun and had the best energy for our photos! We super appreciated her spontaneous props and ideas to capture some intimate and beautiful moments in our home. I highly recommend Theresa!"

This 1st birthday photoshoot was such a fun experience and I’m obsessed with the pictures! "

alison & Greg // Eastchester,NY

"Theresa photographed my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. She scouted the location in advance to find the perfect spot for family photos, and was so patient with our large family. She was also able to capture the entire event, start to finish - she didn't miss a moment. Theresa was wonderful to work with, and we couldn't be happier with our photos!"

Amanda // North Salem ,NY

"Theresa was fantastic to work with! She chose the location for our pictures and it was beautiful! We came with a VERY large group 10 adults, 10 kids) and she was very patient with all of us! Our photos came out amazing. They were a gift for my mom (all of her kids and grandkids together) and she cried when she saw them. I absolutely recommend Theresa!"

Katherine & Tom // Ridgefield, CT

"Theresa was an absolute dream! Our son Owen is extremely animated and very high energy. Theresa is definitely a talent! Each milestone sessions photos turned out absolutely beautiful and she was very kind, responsive, and made us and our son feel comfortable and safe throughout the process. Her choice in locations were both flexible and easy to find, and her prices were very reasonable. We can’t wait to work with her again soon!"

Elizabeth // North Salem, NY

"After over two years I finally have some non-selfie photos of me and my little guy. Toddler shenanigans was no match for Theresa - she was patient and wonderful and managed to capture the many emotions of toddlerhood in 20 minutes. I'm obsessed with the outcome, and may even invite the rest of the family to join us next time!"

Shelby & Alex // North Salem, NY

"Our photos came out absolutely amazing! Not only did we love the photos but the whole experience was so fun. She made sure that our son was having a great time the whole time. We will definitely be using her in the future for our family photos."
